    Great but.....”

    Awesome surroundings and beautiful facilities. However, paying $500+ a night I would expect a little peace and quiet around the pool. I know this is not an adults only property, but the pool being so big, could easily have a section for adults only.. There was a kid pool but the kids were all over... It was hard to have a drink at the swim up bar as it was full of loud kids.... Secondly, this place really takes advantage by charging outrageous prices for food and drink... The outdoor dinner, bbq was ok... but not worth $120 per person without alcohol.. just a few salads and grilled kebabs... A hamburger at the pool costs $32 and a can of coke $10, while a shot of tequila - I paid $28.... Keep this in mind when booking this resort... you can easily go bankrupt spending on food and drink.

    Great with some concerns”

    Awesome setting, beautiful facilities. However, if after paying $600 a night you want some peace and quiet around the pool forget it. There were many families with small children here... the resort needs to set aside one section of the very large pool as adults only... There were children everywhere.. at the swim up bar too.. very noisy. Secondly, the prices for food and drinks here are astronomical. I paid $32 for a hamburger, and $28 for a shot of tequila. Yes, you are in the middle of the desert, but this is over the top in taking advantage of people.

    WOW!”

    This place was easily the most unique place I think I have ever stayed. It is literally in the middle of nowhere which makes it awesome. Yes, it is a little pricey but you are paying for the location. The meals here are a little expensive so keep that in your budget. Other than that we loved swimming in the pool and hiking the sand dunes at night. This is a memory I will never forget.

    Truly, a lifetime experience!”

    Qasr al Sarab is much more than just a hotel. It is a real desert experience in the romantic tradition of literature and film. Our eight-year-old son is still talking about the sand dunes, the camels and the French fort-style accommodation. It is not cheap, but the cost is soon forgotten.

    Fantastic stay with arabic touch”

    The hotel is located in the middle of the desert surrounded by big sand dunes with a mythic atmosphere. The hotel and facilities are build in Arabic style. The room we had was clean and very spacious. (room with terrace/balcony) The bathtub was excellent (very big), the view from the balcony was great. The bed/mattress, pillows and duvet were awesome. Best sleep ever. I even considered to buy the brand... You can do many thing around and the pool gives you a relaxed oasis feeling. I can definitely recommend this hotel. Enjoy!

    Too good to be true”

    4 hours car driving makes us tired but it really worth it. The view and automosphere is too good to be true just bcz of the isolated location. Imagine travel lonely with a camal and meet an oasis. It is really paradise. Good staff, good food, good room.Though need to pay much but it is really a dream land in my life. Hope people comes here to keep it could maintain for a long long time. I hope I can visit here again.

    Desert Oasis”

    Location, Architecture, Food

    This is a special place. The resort feels like an Arabian oasis in the middle of the desert. Although it is a recent construction, it feels authentic and the architecture is amazing, you feel like being in an ancient fortress village. The food choices are all good, sometimes simply too much! Good service and nice activities, but do note that even very young children will have to pay for the activities. Mornings are best when it starts getting hot.

    The hotel itself, beautiful Arabic rooms, great food, great service, one of the quietest hotels and best beds

    There is nothing to fault with the hotel. It is a beautiful resort in ABic style amidst the beautiful Empty Quarter. Food is great too. We needed a tour to AlAin the next day and they were able to arrange one day before. Perhaps the only con is the massively overpriced car transfer.
